Description: 

Each year on this free 45-minute call, approximately 400 listeners have joined us, with many more listening together in counseling centers, domestic violence shelters, meeting rooms, at school and at home; each year our numbers continue to grow. This is a very special time for us to come together in observance of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month to:

  • Mourn those who have died because of domestic violence,
  • Celebrate the advancements we have made to support those who have survived, and
  • Connect those within the movement to end violence against women and girls.

This year’s call will feature the story of Christi Paul, NHH Headline News Anchor. Ms. Paul is a survivor of domestic violence and recently published author of a very inspiring and empowering book, Love Isn’t Supposed to Hurt. She has a powerful voice and she uses it to help others in need, particularly children, as a Board of Directors member with Safe Kids Georgia and as an ambassador for Liz Claiborne's Love Is Not Abuse. Registration is FREE.  Upon registering, you will receive two confirmation emails; one will ask you to "print your ticket and bring it to the event." Please print your ticket for the call-in details, but you do not need to bring it to the event. You can participate from any location using a landline or mobile phone.
